6:29am
party is -- has their own view and should be taking that into consideration, even though i'm not a republican but i feel like we should be making sure that their views are still heard, because at the end of the day, we have to deal with them, you know. and if we don't deal with them then we are just as bad as they are. >> stephanie: well, yeah although -- that's the thing we always talk about on this show is -- both sides are not equal in this. they just aren't. >> caller: absolutely. >> stephanie: by the way who i'm loving more and more and more michael thomasky in "the daily beast." do you read him? >> yes. >> stephanie: he writes really great stuff, and again it's not like this is a new theme, this is not my dad's republican party, but it just -- literally
6:30am
is a great piece about how far right they have gone, and how ungovernable they have made things. you know, anyway he writes diluted republican reformers. the conventional view of what is wrong with the gop because there are all of these stories now. the story focuses on policy positions, immigration, same-sex marriage climate change, god knows policy positions are a problem, but they are not the -- they are a problem not the problem. the problem is the party fan gnat call. we have never seen anything like this in the modern history of our country. it is destroying the republican party. that's fine with me. although i'm constantly mystified as to why it's all right for the people i'm talking
6:31am
about. it is destroying our democratic processes, which is not fine with me. and then he makes a great -- he makes a great analogy about a family at the thanksgiving table, and you know -- how you are ignoring the obvious. >> because of gerrymandering republicans don't have to win elections anymore. so they don't care. >> stephanie: yeah. twenty-nine minutes after the hour. that and representative john yarmuth next on the "stephanie miller show." ♪ going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of

now. >> stephanie: party of one. >> you take what you can get. >> stephanie: that's exacting though. >> there was an independent poll done, maybe six weeks ago that showed her within the margin of error against mcconnell. he did his own poll a couple of weeks ago, and this was bizarre, and he basically surveyed his base. [ laughter ] >> the sample was 60-something percent conservative. and even with that, he got the 49% against ashley. >> stephanie: right. >> even surveying his base he couldn't get the 50%. so there is a lot of energy to retire him. >> stephanie: karl rove is askeered already.

they are already running ads against her. >> oh, yeah. it's a riot. mitch is panicked. she has not told me she has made a decision to run, but i'm sure she would. >> stephanie: let's talked sequestration, because it's just -- i -- i don't know what more to say about all of this. you have even got republican governors now screaming, saying you have got to do something about this, like the show is over, right? >> yes, i'm a little bit off message with my party on this. i say just fix it. >> yeah. yeah. >> just stop it. we can do it in five minutes with one sentence and if everything thinks it is such a bad idea let's just stop it. we have won the argument that we have always tried to make that significant cuts in federal spending damage the economy.
6:39am
we won that argument so let's forget about that. we just won. so let's accept the victory. >> you may be off message with the rest of your party, but you are on message with the rest of america. >> stephanie: what does that mean in terms of what he should do now or how you do it? >> it's very very difficult working with the other party, and probably the most logical thing would be to delay the sequester -- practically speaking, to delay the sequester to march 27th when we have to come up with a mechanism for funding. so let's just wrap all of this issue into that debate -- because right now we're having the same debate we had in 2011, and right before the end of the year and we're going to have for the next three and a half weeks anyway and
6:40am
we'll have after that. it's exactly the same debate and i think the american people are rightfully confused and i'm confused as to why we're doing this well. >> stephanie: the president called for a two month delay in the sequester. and somebody writes kicking the can isn't pretty but there's little hope for a grand bargain this week. >> there's no hope. >> stephanie: right. >> i have to call speaker boehner out on this, the idea that he is trying to wash his hands of the whole thing is ridiculous. first of all he is the leader of the house of representatives, and for him to say the president and harry reid ought to get together and come up with a solution. to me he is insulting himself. >> stephanie: yeah. >> but the other thing is that the republican conference and the house of representatives enacted the sequester.
6:41am
>> stephanie: right. >> 170-something members it would not have passed without him -- >> stephanie: but congressman he is said it's the president's sequester hashtag. >> i know, and i didn't know the president has a vote in the congress. >> stephanie: yeah. there are a lot of people talk about all of the ways the sequester will impact people's lives, and charlie pierce was on, and he wrote a great piece about this is all local news has time to cover. so democrats have already won the pr, you know battle here so how do you see this playing out by friday? >> well, i still think we're going to get some kind of delay in the sequester. i think ultimately -- the rational thing will ultimately happen at the very last minute after every other absurd solution is abandoned.
6:42am
>> stephanie: literally the argument makes no sense, right. the cuts are no big deal and a disaster, and they are going to happen anyway and it's the president's fault. >> yeah. >> stephanie: they can't even stick to a cohere ent argument. >> exactly. and unfortunately we're helping them out. because we're sending a mixed message as well. >> stephanie: i don't know why i intrinsically don't trust anything karl rove says but he wants the president to own any of the police call consequences. >> yeah and that's such a cynical and crazy idea and it's not going to happen. it's just another posturing thing for the republicans to try
6:43am
to seem reasonable. >> the best thing that could happen is for boehner to keep talking. >> stephanie: yeah. >> if we lose jobs so be it. >> yeah. and we weren't in session last week when we could have actually been working on this and i know the speaker has criticized president obama for playing golf in florida a week ago but speaker boehner was playing golf at the same time. they were on the opposite sides of florida but it's a pretty narrow state, they could have gotten together. >> somebody in congress said there should be no golf or vacations until this thing is settled. >> i agree we should not be -- we should not recess at all until this thing is settled. >> stephanie: right. >> no, we have been in session now -- this congress has been in session for seven weeks.
6:44am
we have actually had ten days of official full business days in seven weeks. >> wow. >> stephanie: yeah. >> that's speaker boehner again. they set the schedule. >> stephanie: the talking points memo, says [ inaudible ] massive pr advantage over the gop, the democrats have an unusually steady message, republicans are lurching from message to message while contending the consequences won't be so dire and argue that obama's revenue demand is an act of duplicity. >> right. >> stephanie: they don't have a coherent message, right? >> right. and for speaker boehner to get up yesterday saying the president shouldn't be
6:45am
campaigning with the military today. this is a guy who supported a president who flew into an aircraft carrier in a jumpsuit to declare war for ten more years. >> stephanie: yeah. this is the same thing they say every time when the president speaks about issues that he ran and won on that's him playing politics, campaigning, whatever. is that your sense from the inside that that is what is going to happen? that there will be this delay. >> we are in a game of chicken, and it may be polyan-ish thinking on my part but there clearly is no confidence at all that i can see that there is any alternative to that. i mean we're not going to come
6:46am
to an agreement in the next 48 hours, which is basically the what we have -- >> stephanie: because you waited until the night before to write your term paper again, didn't you? >> exactly. >> stephanie: representative always great to check in with you on this, but it must be exhausting to be you. it really is a manufactured washington crisis again. here we are, right? >> it's the dumbest one i have seen yet in my six-plus years. >> stephanie: and that's saying something. >> the bar is getting higher and higher. >> stephanie: let us know when ashley judd calls you. >> all right. >> stephanie: thank you representative.

6:48am
demand that a cabinet nominee disprove rumors against him. like me i'm sure many of you were agast -- [ inaudible ] are there any conservative writers thinking this kind of thing makes them sick and ashamed. yeah, this person just lost their child. and he said it is not going to pass! >> yeah, wow. >> stephanie: anyway, we all know the problem. it's rush limbaugh and roger ailes. fox viewers are always the least connected to reality. anyway but just more great stuff
